1970 BS200MIISS-7 No Skid Plate or front engine mount
« on: June 24, 2020, 09:45:53 PM »
Can anybody tell me if the front engine mount and skid plate were a dealer install after delivery or were they shipped completely assembled? My bike was my 65th birthday present from Mom who purchased it in 1972 New from Liebelt Chevrolet Beulah ND. She swears the bike never had either! Bike has 1475.2 mi. on it, all by mom and sister. I believe her as no marks on frame or motor  indicate any markings of assembly!

Not sure how the bikes arrived from the factory,  but both parts should have been installed on the bike when sold. See attached pics...

Thanks Moonpup! That's how I came to figure out mine was never installed. I believe this bike to be a SS-7 by the numbers and Grahams ID guide. Frame # TA1-35389  Engine # TA2-04456 Serial #23B04490  BS200 in 175 frame.  Any Idea for Parts to make this bike as original as possible again, it has only 1475 miles on it.and belonged to 85 yr. old Mom since new. She gave it to me for 65th birthday.

Hi Perry,

Along with the sump plate you need 2 X 6762-8010 - U bolts and the nuts and washers. I happen to have 2 NOS ones which you can have as a birthday gift as I turned 65 this month. I do not have the nuts & washers. Send me your postal address.
 
Check with Richard for an NOS sump plate. If not then try eBay for a used one. It can be sand blasted clean and powder coated. Then your bike is to spec.

I will try to send a screen shot of them after this.

Thank you SR-175 for the assistance and a belated Happy Birthday!! I will contact Richard and see what is available. I recently sold a 1989 Buick Riviera to a friend and he's offered me an even trade for the bike? After consideration I said No, because this bike is not about the money but what it may mean to somebody. If You, Moonpup and Richard know who it may be Please contact me at 701-667-2901. or E-mail me at perryanderson_55@q.com    I can also furnish you with my adress and I will keep the parts with the bike  as original parts. Once again thank you much for the present and help! Now let's find the one deserving, maybe he's the one with the plate and mount wondering where the hell his bike is?
